corker joins a growing number of officials questioning whether the obama administration was involved in a coverup and we are back with the panel. the director of national intelligence issued an extraordinary statement friday afternoon that their initial information was that it was a spontaneous protest but since then got new you information and revised the assaysment and now believe it was a deliberate and organized terrorist attack. does that get the obama white house off the hook in their shifting explanations of what happened in benghazi? >> it shouldn't. it was clear it was a terrorist attack. it was obvious it was a terrorist attack before susan rice came on this show and others saying oh, no, it was a spontaneous attack about a video. it turns out al-qaeda is capable or al-qaeda affiliates are capable of launching terrorist aattackeds on american embassies and in this case quite a sophisticated one. and attacks on the day after in sudan and tunisia and yemen. we have a war going on and the president doesn't want to discuss that so they tried to pretent this was a spontaneous re

in the obama administration. the president has focused a lot on the middle class, both in his policies and the rhetoric, the fact that the way the economy is playing out distributionly has been so skewed. >> i think that's a fair critique. my personal view is there should have been a larger stimulus. that would have helped consumer demand, it would have helped the middle class more. the distributional effects are skewed. the stock market, a lot of people have their pensions in there. a lot of unions have pensions in there. the stabilization of the market and taking the market from 6,000 -- >> and the growth. >> and the growth has helped a lot of middle class families. i think that's being reflected in the battleground support. >> joe? >> one area where i agree with sheila completely is the sort of failure to look at that household debt to gdp chart that you showed earlier and say, this is the problem. there has been a lot of confusion, i think, people talk about the banks, the national debt, whatever. this was the core of the issue, the fact that households had too much debt and that t
the obama administration. >> in the book you write about the obama's administration handling of the withdrawal from iraq. the administration had a fresh chance to reengage with iraq's leaders and shape its politics. obama did not act decisively on that chance choosing ahead to take hands off approach on iraq. this decision was characteristic of those obama made on iraq. he saw america's involvement there not as an opportunity but rather as a leftover minefield, a path out of which had to be charted as quickly as possible. explain that to us. >> at the end of the bush administration, the beginning of the obama administration, violence was down substantially in iraq. the question was were we going to keep a small number of troops in iraq after 2011? how would that be negotiated? there was a significant difference, i think, in perspective between the pentagon where admiral mullen, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, civilians, saw iraq as an opportunity. they wanted to keep a reasonably sized force around 16,000. at the white house, the national security adviser saw it more t

of confirmations of judicial nominees from the obama administration, if you look at the politics that have been paid in the senate, everything has changed. the deference, all of that is out the window. it's just not the same. i think the next supreme court nomination, we are going to see a whole level of animosity, a whole level of fight that is very new to us. >> let me put up this graphic which is the confirmation under clinton, bush and the president. george w. bush high, president obama high but ten points lower. to me, it looks like a one way ratchet. things move in the way of destruction, not back. >> republicans are more motivated on this. >> that's the problem. >> the democrats are not motivated on this. obama deserves responsibility. 78 have been confirmed, but he hasn't filled all the seats. he has not nominated enough judges to fill the va can says there. the republicans say how can you blame us. >> this motivation is so key and important. we saw it when, remember when the democratic senate was filibustering judicial nominees by george w. bush, the republicans had a big event called
remain in place. still remain secure. >> we hope he is right. last month, president obama said his administration made clear to the syrian regime that if we start seeing a government moving around, quote: a whole bunch of weapons that would be a red line. so far there is no word from the white house about whether this latest movement means syria has crossed that red line. but the white house is taking other steps. we know that to target the syrian regime. in fact, today, secretary of state hillary clinton attended a meeting at the united nations and pledged another $45 million to help the opposition in syria. those rebels who are trying to force out their brutal and bloody leader. it's fox top story and jonathan hunt is in it -- on it live at the united nations tonight. do we have any indication of what those rebels, who are opposing rat jesus' name plan to do with that money? >> well, what we are told by 15 million of the 45 million will go towards communication equipment for the rebels. something that the u.s. has previously funded. the other 30 million, according to secretary o

the administration noted that the 33,000 american troops that had been sent in there some two years ago, a little bit less than two years ago as part of the surge authored by president obama had come out. the president never ceases to point out on the campaign trail and elsewhere, that he has ended the war in iraq, has ended the war in afghanistan, two years hence u.s. combat troops are expected to be pulled out of a afghanistan in 2014. so obviously this presents some problems as well as the grim facts on the ground. with these horrific green-on-blue attacks. >> how much does the president anticipate the war in afghanistan will play into the debates on wednesday? >> it's a mixed bag at this point. the president as i pointed out, frequently pointing out that he has a plan to bring american troop combat troops out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. he's talked about his success in bringing american combat troops out of iraq. he's talking about some of the successes up until recently. in endorsing the arab spring in libya and tunisia to a certain extent in egypt. but certainly the situation in libya ri
